      Pulmonary Hypertension News’ Brittany Foster tackles the challenges that come with living with an invisible illness in her latest column:

      “‘At least you don’t look sick.’

      I’ve heard this comment before — meant as a compliment, I’m sure. As if saying ‘you don’t look sick’ is a good thing. As if it makes up for feeling like I got hit over the head with a bag of bricks.

      I appreciate the days I can go out into the world and look presentable enough to receive this comment. Recently, these days have been few and far between. If someone told me “at least you don’t look sick,” I would probably run to the nearest mirror just to check my gorgeous self out. The reality is, even on my good days, I’m still struggling with my illness. I’m still “sick,” even if it doesn’t look like it.”
